the loaded tight end corps
Nick Boyle never looked 100 percent after he returned from knee surgery last season, but he’s had a few months to get healthier and his elite blocking ability is a key to Baltimore’s attack. Meanwhile, the Ravens doubled-down in the draft by taking two tight ends in the fourth round – Charlie Kolar and Isaiah Likely. Both must prove they can contribute immediately, but they could find roles as rookies because the Ravens love using multiple tight end packages. The Ravens got their first daily look at Mark Andrews during OTAs in 2018, which began his NFL journey to becoming an All-Pro tight end.
the defensive line welcomes new and returning faces
The Ravens re-signed Calais Campbell and brought back Michael Pierce and Brent Urban, but veteran Derek Wolfe (back/hip) missed all of last season and the Ravens went into the offseason wanting to get younger up front. Plenty of young linemen who could use OTAs as a springboard into 2020, including Justin Madubuike, Broderick Washington, third-round pick Travis Jones, Isaiah Mack and Khalil McKenzie.
young cornerbacks getting up to speed
The Ravens drafted two fourth-round corners, Jalyn Armor-Davis and Damarion Williams, who could earn playing time right away behind Marlon Humphrey and Marcus Peters. Brandon Stephens is also expected to play more corner than safety next season after the Ravens drafted Kyle Hamilton and signed Marcus Williams. The Ravens signed veteran Kyle Fuller on the first day of OTAs, so he’ll try to get up to speed as fast as possible.
